Subject Re: Comprehensive Port Configuration reference?

Howdy Andrew,

I noticed you have a configuration item that we were not aware of:
spark.history.ui.port .  Is that new for 1.0?

Also, we noticed that the Workers and the Drivers were opening up four
dynamic ports per application context.  It looks like you were seeing two.

Everything else looks like it aligns!

Hi everyone,

I've also been interested in better understanding what ports are used where
and the direction the network connections go.  I've observed a running
cluster and read through code, and came up with the below documentation

Scott and Jacob -- it sounds like you two have pulled together some of this
yourselves for writing firewall rules.  Would you mind taking a look at
this pull request and confirming that it matches your observations?  Wrong
documentation is worse than no documentation, so I'd like to make sure this
is right.

  Judging by the frequency with which this topic arises, this is a
  concern for many (myself included).

  I couldn't find anything in JIRA about it, but I'm curious to know
  whether the Spark team considers this a problem in need of a fix?
